Present: Sascha, Muhammet, Heiko


  * Tight integration
    + mkara wants to discuss what we can do to make it working
    + state is that a temporary address is used with extensions
      frozen at the time when the project was done
    + implemented API is not fully compatible yet (Muhammet)
    + several options on the table; fall-back solution is to run
      a script that updates the temp site every day but ideally
      we get it running on the actual extension site;
      will take care of this (Muhammet)
    + Hard feature freeze was Nov 16, UI freeze is Dec 14
    + will abandon the patch to make it exerimental (Heiko)
    => update next design meeting, Dec/03

  * Escape chart mode after Insert > Chart
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137891
    + cannot reproduce, escape closes the module and allows to
     delete (Heiko, Muhammet)
    + different behaviour between Windows and Linux (7.0.2) (Sascha) - but not
      on 7.2 (Heiko)
    + pressing escape multiple times is weird (Sascha)
      + only once required on Windows but two or three times on Linux
      + Chart Area is selected on Linux but not on Windows
      + sidebar is blank with no chart element selected
      + sidebar is not reliably refreshed
    => WFM, escaping the chart mode per ESC is possible with master
      (and on Windows)

  * Loss of nominated Chart data series Labels when target cells hidden or
    grouped & collapsed
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134059
    => assigned and patch has been submitted

  * Unwanted scroll to bottom when changing language of document
    (CTRL+A Language change)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137603
    + remember current position on select all (instead of going
      to the end) (Heiko)
    + MS Word does left/up to first character, right/down to the end;
      LibreOffice always goes to the end, actually SelectAll changes the
      cursor position
    + API might be affected when we change the behavior (Muhammet)
    + also an option to change the view immediately with SelectAll (Sascha)
    + same situation for sentence/paragraph selection (currently the cursor
      goes to the end)
    + we may also keep the view position after SelectAll and any
      operation (Muhammet)
      + would dislike the separation of cursor position and view (Heiko)
      + only manually scrolling, eg. SelectAll + scroll to p10, should be kept
    => ideally keep the cursor position, otherwise scroll to cursor

  * Anchor decoration in Toggle formatting marks on mode (to so they exact
    location of the anchor)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138351
    + change the anchor color/symbol?
    + using a blueish symbol sounds like a plan (Sascha)
    + might be worth to make it depended to the icon theme since
      not all users want the icon to be obtrusive (Heiko)
    => recommend color to icon designers
